It seems like a week doesn't go by without a crazy new diet tip or fad storming the internet, promising you that all of your weight loss woes are over.
It always starts with some "new knowledge." You know, like carbs are bad for you, no it's your daily caloric intake, no, it's wine, no, it's sugar, no, it's actually not enough carbs released slowly throughout the day. Red meat's bad for you one day, then the next day vegan diets are terrible. It seems like whatever you want to believe, you can find an "expert" who will confirm whatever it is.
It's all a bit maddening.
